RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time a program is started, it is stored in the RAM, because it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a particular web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even if it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you opt to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server packages include a massive amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run very heavy web apps with no difficulties. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we build a new web server to ensure that there will never be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we shall ensure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we notice that you're not using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You can easily check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
